Course Introduction

**This English language and English language teaching degree combines the principles of language and communication with teaching.**

**Why study this at Greenwich?**

* Combines the academic study of language and communication with the study of literature

* Enables access to a wide range of careers not only in education, but in areas such as marketing, the digital industry and social media

* The content of the courses is organised around two core strands: language analysis, (where sound, meaning and use are studied) and English literature, (where students are introduced to a wide range of challenging texts and new ways of reading)

* English literature is interpreted broadly to include drama and visual narratives as well as fiction and poetry

* The teaching modes will contribute to the development of your skills in data analysis, logical and critical-thinking as well as creative skills

* You will participate in lectures and seminars, where you will develop your own projects

This programme allows students to study the principles of language and communication, and the practice of English language teaching, while also incorporating courses from a variety of other subject pathways.

The programme combines the academic study of language and communication with practical training in English language teaching (ELT). It prepares students for a wide range of career opportunities from education (e.g. teaching English as a first or second language in the UK or abroad) to research in language acquisition, to publishing, media, and the digital industry.

The aims of the programme are:

* To help students develop analytical and critical thinking skills

* To give students an understanding of the properties and analysis of human language

* To provide students with an understanding of the process of language acquisition

* To give students an appreciation of the possible applications of the knowledge of language

* To provide students with knowledge about how to design and produce materials for a language lesson

* To give students an appreciation of current practice and developments in language teaching and testing in ELT

* To provide them with seminal teaching practice.

**Careers**

Graduates can pursue careers in education, for instance as teachers of English as a first or second language, either in the UK or abroad. You could also consider roles in publishing, the media or administration. Opportunities for postgraduate study could include research into language and language acquisition. Some career options may require further study.
